I was paid a very high compliment today from someone in Tom Petty's management office. And if this compliment isn't reason to pay attention to what I post here on tompetty.rocks, I don't know what is.
Your ear is so close to the ground you'll probably have details before me!!!
This person told me that "your ear is so close to the ground you'll probably have details before me!!!" I wrote East End today asking about the Wildflowers re-release. I was told that the final decisions regarding the release haven't been made yet, but I do know that 10 previously unreleased songs from the Wildflowers sessions will be released in 2015. The person I talked with hadn't heard them yet, but said they have talked to people who have and of course, they're fantastic.
It's still unclear as to whether the songs will be released by themselves or coupled with an enhanced release of 1994's Wildflowers. Or who knows, maybe both. But my gut is telling me it will be a re-release of Wildflowers coupled with the ten unreleased songs.
Can't wait to hear the "new to us" songs and a blu-ray version of Wildflowers and/or Vinyl pressing would be great too.
I'm guessin' Springtime release.
